Interview For Gate Of Lions Site
Masterplan is the new super band featuring Grapow, Lande and Kusch among the members. And Roland ensures that it's not kind of a project, but a normal band instead. Their single "Enlighten Me" opened a glorious way for the full self-titled album that stroke the CD stores on January 20th. The interview is very short, so you have another reason to read through, hehe.
Hi Roland, welcome to Gate Of Lions and thanks for your time. First of all, congratulations on the new album, sounds awesome. What lots of people want to know, is Masterplan a full time band or a side project?
How did Masterplan came about and who is the main force behind the band?
Will Masterplan be playing on any festivals this Summer?
I must say that your guitar playing sounds so fresh on this album. Was your guitar playing restricted in Helloween?
Who composed most of the songs in Masterplan?
Why did you decide to include a cover song from Led Zeppelin?
I love Jorn Lande's voice. How did you secure such a talented vocalist?
Is Jorn Lande still going to do his solo albums or is he 100% focused on Masterplan?
Which bands do you admire and why?
I think AFM Records is doing a good thing with Masterplan. Are you happy with the way the label is promoting you?
So what does Roland Grapow do to relax?
I live in Australia. Any plans of coming down here? Edguy did last year and had a blast, haha. [Lionlord asking] What about Greece?
Which are your ambitions as a musician?
Thanks again and I wish you the best of luck. To end the interview you could give a title to the interview or say a word of wisdom, or anything you like!
